Re: Assange makes 1st public appearance in 2 months
One need not be suspected to have given up any classified goods to be charged under communicating with the enemy.
Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death.
Duh, your publishing classified documents on a public site, where anyone could read them, by definition, how does Wikileaks figure they get an exception?
Is that what happened?
Mr Ratner said that under US law it would most likely have been considered criminal for the US Air Force analyst to communicate classified material to journalists and publishers, but those journalists and publishers would not have been considered the enemy or prosecuted.
If those journalist aided or were otherwise involved in the crime of acquiring those documents, hell yes they would be prosecuted.
That is the billion dollar question, given that the US hasn't laid charges etc, I'd say no, but is the investigation over, maybe not.
